But as we are also flawed beings, so many of us are missing the mark.
The Bible tells us that where our treasure is, therefore also our heart is. Our hearts that were designed to worship God, are falling in love with other gods. False idols. Our worship at the throne of Heaven is replaced by worship of idols- sex, music, tv, iphones. We lay our sacrifices down before the alters of television, candy crush, pornography... Our sacrifices being family, friends, and purity.
Ouch, That hurts! I know, it does. I don't say it for you. I don't say it because I'm pointing fingers. I know where to pint my finger, and it isn't away from me.
Time is so precious! These babies only last as babies so long! This marriage must be nurtured spiritually, emotionally, and physically if it is meant to last. And yet, we (I) consistently set these things aside to fulfill the selfish nature within us (me).
I pray for awakening. I pray for conscientiousness. I pray that Christ will lift the fog and reveal to us all our dirty, lying gods. I pray renewal, new life, over myself, over all who read this. I pray that we lay aside our false gods, and return to beautiful, pure worship of the One true God.
